These simple tricks will make getting your child’s kinky-curly hair ready for bed a breeze.
1.REMOVE HAIR ACCESSORIES
Taking out all unnecessary hair ties, clips and/or barrettes from your child’s hair going to ensures that there will be no added pressure on the scalp and hair line. This also helps alleviate hair breakage due to the elimination of pulling, tugging and overall manipulation of the hair.
2. MOISTURIZE THE STRANDS
To ensure that you skip that extra morning hair care step, apply a leave-in conditioner, moisturizing spray or oil on the hair from root to tip. Our Shine Bright Safflower Oil is perfect for adding sheen to the hair and sealing in moisture.
3.REPLACE COTTON PILLOWCASES AND BONNETS WITH SATIN ALTERNATIVES
After hours of hair styling, there’s nothing worse than waking up to a mess in the morning. Avoid this catastrophe by swapping out your child’s cotton pillowcases with satin options, or slipping a silk-like bonnet/scarf around their head before the lights are out. The bonnet will seal in moisture and act as a barrier to movements while sleeping.
4. CREATE SHORT TERM PROTECTIVE STYLE
This tip is useful for the curlies that wish to protect their twist outs from night time danger. By twisting the hair into large chunky quadrants and securing at the top of the head (called the pineapple method) with a hair tie, the hair doesn’t get, curls are stretched and the definition stays intact.
